Thick, course hair? Or very curly? If it’s about your hair texture, or maybe if you just want to straighten your hair in a flash, a good, hot flat iron is the answer. However, not all flat irons are capable of reaching high temperatures and keeping your hair healthy at the same time.
There are few flat irons that can reach 450°F and even less that genuinely look after your hair, so forget about economic brands right away. Even if these promise high temperatures, they also produce uneven heat and can create hotspots, overheating your hair and causing damage. The reason for this is that cheaper flat irons use low quality heating materials that provide burning, unhealthy heat. Concentrate on finding a professional flat iron that you know comes with high quality heating elements.
Why a 450°F flat iron? If your hair is thick, unruly or just difficult to style, you can apply high temperatures so that it can be styled quickly and successfully. if you have thin or fine hair, so much heat isn’t quite necessary because the delicate strands are more vulnerable to heat damage, but if you find a 450°F flat iron with variable heat settings, then expect safe styling and quick results.
With a professional flat iron that reaches 450°F, you need to check that the technology and heating elements it uses are advanced and genuine. With ceramic or tourmaline you can be sure of constant temperatures, even heat and swift styling even if your hair is thick or curly. The ceramic provides a gentle, moist and even heat that makes sure the natural oils of your hair are sealed in for shiny, healthy styles.
So which is the best flat iron that can produce these high temperatures? Check out the Karmin G3, which features tourmaline ceramic technology and pure tourmaline ceramic plates to style thick, course or curly hair easily.
